A little more imaginative is the circulation building for Northstar.
Section 101, Row 34
Indications that club seating (the wider spaced areas above each dugout) will be a major presence in the lower deck
The same section seen from Target Center. Yep, looks like bridge supports.
The first completed mural
The scoreboard terminates the view on Fifth Street as seen from Hennepin
Stairs and escalator down to the platform
Here is Seventh Street viewed from the west looking toward downtown. This will probably be the most pedestrian-friendly side (other than the plaza), but only if there is some psychological barrier between the people on foot and the people in their dangerously fast-moving automobiles.
August 2001 (a month later we were engaged)
A close-up of the rooftop party deck.
We bumped into Jerry Bell (at right)!
Looking across the top of the B parking ramp. Notice that signage will block any attempts at seeing the game from up there. Also take note of the glassed in area which is part club and part office space for the Ballpark Authority.
Seating mound (seen from the B ramp)
These stairs will go up to the centerfield pavilion.
In addition to the Pro Shop facade, you can see more gravel being laid before the final plaza surface is poured.
The Metropolitan Club (click to enlarge)
This is the Carew gate covered in plastic.
A sign that your mall is all but dead: roped off escalators. (This is at about 4:00 PM on a weekday.)
And another angle looking at the overhang area of the right field pavilion. This looks to me like a great area to watch a game.
Ballpark elevation viewed from the promenade (HERC plant) side. (Click to enlarge.)
The plate marker is just to the left.
The louvres on Fifth have been completely filled in
I'm too short to see over that wall. How about a little platform or something?
Checking out the bike racks on the promenade.
This will be a great sight on game nights.
This is the staircase (ramp?) leading up to the trapezoid. Nice flagpole too. You'll be able to find me and Ben McEvers at the base of that flagpole on opening day in 2010!
Train. (What is it about baseball and trains?)
Look closely at the overhang. You'll see the on the right it is flush with the fence, and then it sticks out farther and farther as you move toward center. More fun for Michael Cuddyer.
